Concurrent Tracks for Saturday Workshops

Saturday's schedule consists of 7 total sessions (time slots), each with three workshops running concurrently in separate rooms within the TCB building. 90-minute workshops will span two sessions (e.g. Judy's workshop is scheduled for Session 1 & 2). Finalized room schedule will be provided at check-in.  

Workshops listed in the center column are more technical/hands-on and may require the use of TypeWell Transcriber software. Tables and chairs in this room will be set up to accommodate steno tables with laptops. Extension cords will be provided.  

Workshops listed in the right column are geared toward Service Coordinators.  

All participants are welcome to attend workshops of their choice, regardless of track/room.  

Workshop schedule is subject to change! Finalized room schedule will be provided at check-in.
